Gerard Butler & Adrien Brody: 'Let's Build A School For Haiti!'

Gerard Butler & Adrien Brody: 'Let's Build A School For Haiti!'

Gerard Butler and Adrien Brody show their support for Artists for Peace and Justice at its “Let’s Build a School for Haiti” fundraising dinner on Friday (November 5) at NYC’s Salon Millesime.

Gerard, 40, is a part of APJ’s Advisory Board, along with a handful of celebs including Daniel Craig, Russell Crowe, James Franco, Penelope Cruz, Clint Eastwood and Charlize Theron.

On the red carpet, Gerard met up and posed with Israeli TV presenter Moran Atias.

Earlier this week, the Scottish stud reportedly came to the rescue of a woman who fell on the street after tripping on her high heels.

Gerard noticed the woman on the ground after grabbing dinner with some friends in NYC and helped her to her feet!

    @what weird world did I stumble:
    Name one person who is better looking?
    * * *
    Chris Evans, just to name the first one I can think of. But being better goodlooking than others wouldn’t take Gerry anywhere anyway. At Gerry’s age you’ve to focus on something else than your looks, everybody gets old, sooner or later.
    @Really?:
    So I think he is still astonished by his success and fame. It’s very admirable when one is not so jaded that he/she takes things for granted, but can still feel the magnitude of something. When all is said and done, he’s still a little boy from Paisley.
    * * *
    That’s the most absurd thing I come across reading phannies comments everywhere, from gossip boards to motherships.
    *
    Little boy from Paisley never existed.
    Have you any idea how Paisley or Glasgow are?? If Gerry used to live (as he said in some interviews) in a poor area of Paisley, sure you come out of it as a real fighter. And if you fought hard to succeed in your career or to climb the ladder from an unknown actor to a guy who’s almost an Alist one now, sure you can’t be overwhelmed by anything anymore.
    *
    Sorry for the rant, just tired to hear same old stories…..
    *
    Little boy from Paisley was King Leonidas from the beginning, believe me… Tonight, his old pals dine in hell… while he dines in lavish restaurants in NYC… ;-)

    *G’morning JJers*

    Ladies, I have read most of your posts from tonight and I perceive Gerry in many of the ways you have. He does guard his heart for whatever reasons. His eyes do tell all of what he is feeling. I think when he first went into this acting business he might not have realized how cut throat it can be and how shallow it can be. He is not easily fooled by the people he meets. It may be hard to get to know him but if you can… I believe it would be worth the effort. I think he is a big soft hearted person who has a fierce stinger when provoked and once hurt by someone…I don’t think he would be very forgiving. Is he abrupt with people…He has to be at times, otherwise he would be pulled in too many different directions. I said before I don’t know if I ever could walk in his shoes. They are pretty big shoes to fill. As far as his looks goes he is still by far one of the most handsome man I ever laid eyes on.

  • redOctober

    I’d like to know him better but the door to his real self is firmly locked, I’m afraid. Except for real friends and family, as it should be.
    We can only see what he chooses to show to the world. A very deceiving image IMO.

  • gossiphound

    @@impression: I think because he is thinner than people expect, even before Gerry lost the weight he has this year, they equate that with shorter I believe the official measurement is 6 feet 1.75 inches and if you saw him standing in those photos beside Terrell Owens who is 6 feet 3 Gerry is clearly close to to six feet 2. Terrell,
    Gerry and Nathan Filion were towering over the whole crowd of men at Cosmo’s Fun and Fearless Award. And tall actors are rare.

  • @GUIDO

    Guido, you have lost all credibility with your wild & crazy range of “predictions” and “facts” that you spew. The regulars here laugh at you now as much as you laugh at them.

  • gossiphound

    I am beginning to think that Gerry who is fabulous looking man who could be far more fabulous looking, with a minimum of adjustment, like shave that neck, almost does these things to look less than perfect on purpose, to show he is not some kind of dandy who obsesses over every detail, that he doesn’t care and yet he does. Like P Diddy obsesses over every detail of his life including his wardrobe. But that is what makes P Diddy successful in business. Perhaps Gerry in fact wants to stand out less or be less intimidating to others because look he attracts attention looking like a slob in the rooster hat, if he was dressed to the GQ nines all the time, the women might be going Hard Day’s Night on him. That’s my psychobabble for the year.

  • Metoo

    Oh Brother Two people say what they saw when seeing Gerry IN PERSON making him appear more normal than expected, and all of a sudden we have others rushing to his defense to say what a sensitive guy he is, that he guards his heart because he’s been so hurt in the past, yada, yada, yada. Damage control much? Gotta guard that image at all costs. And by the way, I don’t see sad eyes, I see bored to the max eyes.

  • Old Mia

    I’m sure their are as many impressions of Gerry in person as there are people who have met him or at least watched him in person. It likely depends on the when, where and why. Whether he was feeling good, rushed, unhappy, happy etc. Just like everyone else on god’s green earth, he has his good days and bad. Most of the time in public, I’m sure he tries to be pleasant, but if something is off, it’s going to show once in awhile. Just part of the human condition.

  • gotta be kiddingi d

    i dont think he’s all that deep, just a really MOODY person- if you catch him in a good mood he’ll be nice, but if something is bothering him or he is pre-occupied, he’ll be abrupt and dismissive. JMO and shows he’s just human like the rest of us, cause most of us are like that too

  • gotta be kidding

    wth happened to my moniker?! typo!

  • casey

    I’ve never seen Gerard in person, but I’d love to. Something on my bucket list!

    In all the videos I’ve seen of him at premieres, he usually is extremely nice and accommodating to his fans. There are a couple of times he has been obviously out of sorts. This has been when he is pressed for time, everyone is screaming at him to sign this or that and to pose for pictures with them – and at the same time his handlers are pulling at his sleeves telling him to hurry up and get in some theater. The level of noise would be enough to drive me over the edge. Everyone has a breaking point.

  • casey

    @Merlin: Never heard of Chris Evans, so I looked him up on IMDb. He’s a nice enuf looking dude, but he doesn’t trip my trigger. Kind of generic. Gerard is anything but generic.

    However, I agree with you that the little boy from Paisley image is a myth. By the time Gerard got into show biz, he’d already led a pretty ‘colorful’ life.

  • Manny

    @gotta be kiddingi d:
    .
    ITAWY!!!!! Many seem to project some romantic notion that he is a tragic character with some Phantom-like heartbroken core and that is why he has “sad” eyes, etc. I think you are spot on that he is moody. He has admitted to it over and over again in interviews. I believe he referred to it as a “Celtic fog.”
    .
    What some are interpreting for “sad eyes” I think is boredom. He is ADD after all and NOTHING holds his attention for long. Part of me thinks this is why this career so suits him. He can pull on a different character and vicariously live something different for a short time.
    .
    From the couple of people in my life who have met him (and I am not one of them), they said he had a small attention span and was constantly looking around him as if he couldn’t focus which could translate as boredom to those trying to converse with him. They also said he was flirting with every woman in the place. So I’m not buying the deeply heartbroken story one bit either.
    .
    This man is at the top of his social game right now with many willing participants. What seems like an empty lifestyle to us may make him perfectly content. Maybe meeting and “getting to know” women is the thing that challenges and validates him. We don’t walk in his shoes so we will never know.
    .
    BTW don’t pick on Guido, he is a dear and fun distraction from all this over-psychoanalyzing. :)

  • Old Mia

    @casey: I can agree with you … G doesn’t fit any mold. So many of the current crop of actors in movies and TV are interchangeable. Not Gerry. He’s one of a kind.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Old Mia: Spot on Mia. He is one of a kind with many different aspects to his personality…like we all have. Obviously being a success at what he does is very important to him as it is with all of us. Failure hurts no matter who it attaches itself to. He is a good actor and he is going to show all that doubt him by choosing better things to get involved in. I don’t wear rose colored glasses in regards to him but I like him and don’t feel the need to tear him one.

  • redOctober

    @Old Mia:

    …agree with you about some young actors looking all alike but others seem to be doing well , Toby Kebbell and Tom Hardy come to mind. We’ll see what their career will bring.

    I find Gerry very unusual in many ways, he does not fit the HW mold …or so he did in the past, that’s why most of us are here, I guess. Looking for something different and interesting.

    I also hope that his future projects will have a strong emphasis on his acting than his looks.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @redOctober: Agree completely Red, enough of the tabloid horse hockey and get down to business with being the best entertainer he can be. I also think he will be successful as a producer. I think he would drive you nuts if he was a director though…but the bossy part might be right up his alley. Can you hear him roar CUT!!!

  • Old Mia

    I think that while he loves the glamor of being in front of the camera and the type of recognition and sceaming fans he gets from it, I think his future will eventually be as a producer and maybe even as a director. He’s a very savvy networker and businessman. Look at all the friends and acquaintances in high places he has cultivated. He doesn’t just go to these events to party.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @Old Mia: ITAWY. He was late to the star party but he has turned it into a successful career…and branching out in other aspects of the business as well.

  • Nuts

    @Manny:

    :o) hahahahaha. Yes!

  • redOctober

    @lolita: “…the bossy part might be right up his alley.”

    ITAWY ; ) …though probably he’ll get better results with charm than with roars.

    I hope he chooses to be a multitasking man “a la Clint Eastwood” (acting/directing/producing) I want to see more movies with him as a leading man.

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @redOctober: Oh yes, for many more years to come. He once compared himself to Clint in an interview…foresight maybe?

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    Melli, Our down under wonder. Where are you. Miss you and hope everything is well with you. Sending warm regards.♥♥♥

  • gotta be kidding

    @redOctober:

    hopefully, it would be a waste of his physical assets to be totally behind (no pun intended) the camera!

    alot of you would disagree but i would really like to watch him in one of those big blockbusters flicks like an Avitar or Transformers. not much of “fine acting” needed there, but for me just would be fun to watch him do it. as well as the MGP type stuff. there’s room for everything. and hey he’s done fluff like BH, so why not?

  • redOctober

    @lolita:

    Clint is very handsome and talented in many areas, a Renaissance man . Gerry is very handsome and has shown his talent in some of his movies…though not at its full height yet…IMO.

  • ThinkFirstThenType

    @gossiphound:

    I have to agree with you on your assessment of why G dresses/appears the way he does. Part of me thinks he does it to play down his looks because he genuinely doesn’t care and another part of me thinks he wants to appear no to care. It’s a “studied insouciance.” The hobo looking jeans for instance probably cost upwards of $500. He’s said that even when he buys new clothes, he likes them to look ‘old.’ (Even that Colorado t-shirt that everyone is waiting on to fall apart, I’m sure it looked like that when he bought it.)
    I’m sure part of the reason for it is that he wants to be taken more seriously than as just a pretty face. For every woman that joins a fan site or posts on a message board, there are many more who don’t but they know who he is and when it comes to Gerard Butler it’s not his acting skills or his business acumen they discuss, it’s how “hawwwwt” they think he is. Even those of us who appreciate him for more still primarily comment on his looks &/or his sex appeal.
    I know there are far more serious problems to have but I can imagine that would get old.
    Not to mention the “Hard Day’s Night” image is scary and probably accurate.

  • redOctober

    @gotta be kidding:

    May be he’ll be part of a big BB among other projects. Nothing absurd or over the top, I hope.

  • CJ

    We LOVE Guido…he/she is a little bit off but very amusing and never calls anyone horrible names even when provoked…♥

  • CJ

    Gerry could never be like Clint Eastwood…Eastwood is calm and focused..something the G man is not..not that Gerry doesn’t have his own good traits but he will never be like Eastwood and why should he be..let him be his own man doing things his own way..is that not what amuses us about him..never liked Eastwoods acting until the last 10 years..he was a very wooden actor in his younger days..♥

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @CJ: Don’t want Gerry to be a clone of Eastwood. I just hope he follows the successful career longevity that Eastwood has had. Gerry is his own man and he doesn’t need to copy anyone else. IMO. His success has come on his accomplishments.

  • CJ

    Well G is like Eastwood in the sense that he is making movies that he wants…you become a producer so you can do that..although I really cannot see Gerry directing..he’s not focused enough and any director will tell you its very, very hard, focused work to direct someone…its all on your head how it goes and who in their right mind would want to take on that responsibilty..but he may dip his hand in that too for all we know..I think producing is the way to go nowdays…a lot of studios just don’t have the money nor want to put out if they don’t think a movie will have a big return and so I am sure all these horrible movies of G’s is just a way to earn money so he can produce..and most actors have a long list of horrible movies they were in..and would rather no one saw them..but that comes with the territory of being a actor..you don’t sign on and think this is going to be a rotten movie..you make the movie and hope for the best…♥

  • redOctober

    I don’t know the man in depth as to say he can’t be successful directing movies. I guess that he has determination and talent enough to accomplish something he really wants to do.

    @CJ: Your right about some movies being made just for the cash…there is no other reason for some of the trash out there. You all have been on this site longer than me…has it been this long in between roles before something is announced for the up and coming projects for Gerry?

  • ADD BOY

    Gerry has ADD/ADHD. There’s no way he can direct a movie with his short attention span.
    Also he’d hit on all the pretty extras that he’d have control over. A sexual harassment lawsuit in the making.

  • gotta be kidding

    @angelsrock:

    right like that, another one

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @redOctober: We all saw the determination he showed to get ready for his role in 300 and Angelrocks your right it was a major hit worldwide. He probably is like a dog gnawing on a bone when he really wants something. I can be like that at times much to my dismay.

I saw a video on Scotland and fell in love with the country. I have known some people who have lived there and spoke so highly of the Scots and the country. You have always shown your pride for your people and homeland and even for our goofy Gerry. I hope one day to visit there. I hope whatever you decide it will be in your best interest. Take care.♥♥

  • redOctober

    @lolita:

    There will be always someone to claim being “in the know” about Gerry and all aspects of his life. I’ve seen it repeatedly in this site.

    …and about 300 and his determination to make it work…

    “…he permanently injured himself for that film. It’s his trademark but he’s got the scars to prove it, torn muscles, rotator cuff injuries, you name it. It’s all because of the intensive programs he went on.”

    http://life.thedailygulf.com/man-thats-tough-7/

    Having to deal with ADD/ADHD (if he really has it) it’s not the end of the world. You just have to work harder .

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    @redOctober: You know Red, I just like the man for who he is. I don’t care who puts me down because of it. He is first a man and second an actor, producer and sometimes a wack job…but I still believe in him and his talent.

  • Laurie 3

    @ThinkFirstThenType:
    No, I think he wears such clothes because he wants to come across as a younger person, since young people (20-somethimg year olds) tend to wear ripped jeans and used-and-abused t-shirts. Gerry wants to appear younger and thus he wears such clothing at every opportunity he has and in which he could get away with.
    .
    For example, to the boat in Cannes, where he was seen with Moran Atias, he came with jeans and t-shirt, while many of the European men wore dinner jackets. But you know, it still worked for him and he didn’t look out of place. After all, he was on a boat in the daytime, and in the US it would be quite acceptable to wear what he wore that day. Furthermore, he also accomplished what he was trying to convey about himself that day, being younger. In fact, we were all commenting on how good he looked despite being critical of his clothing choices because many wanted to see him more debonair – but it’s not him for now. For now he wants to hold on to his youth because he thinks he could still pull it off.
    .
    To the Global Poverty Project he wore jeans and leather jacket, while Huge Jackman wore a suit. But again, he could get away with it because it was not as formal an event and there were others wearing jeans.
    .
    To the APJ, he wore a gorgeous suit because wearing jeans would be inappropriate. There are many other examples of this behavior of his.
    .
    So expect Gerry to wear jeans, t-shirt, and a leather jacket wherever he could get away with it. Of course when he is just walking the streets, you wouldn’t catch him dead wearing anything but “street wear,” the old-looking torn jeans and t-shirt, which one tends to associate with youth.

  • CJ

    Gerry did a lot of damage to his body over the years because of movies…case in point…when he was doing the Lara Croft movie..he decided the night before that he needed to pump up because Angie and the crew were probably wanting a man with big muscles..he was told not to do it because of the damage it would incur but he did it anyway and said afterwards that the scene where he is doing pullups on the ceiling was extremely painful for him because he over did it on the muscle training the night before…Gerry is his own worse enemy…he suffered hearing lose on the set of Gamer because of the discharge of firearms so close to his head…if you are going to do action films, getting hurt is part of the plan..just ask Pierce Brosnon..he warned Daniel Craig of this…told him to have fun but expect to get injured..if you will notice G always has one hand partially closed at all times…that is carpal tunnel damage of some sort..meaning the tendons in his hand are damaged in some way..

    I’m sure producing and directing are looking pretty good to him right now…♥
